Transcendence is a 2d space-faring game inspired by games like Nethack and Star Control. The player begins the game in one of three ships with basic equipment, a few credits, and a near-empty cargo bay. The goal is to reach the galaxy's core, where the mysterious beings "Oracus" and "Domina" are rumored to reside. Like in many roguelike games, the star systems are randomized and death is permanent.

Your ship becomes progressively more powerful as you upgrade your armor, shields and weapons and you can earn money from many sources such as selling loot and completing missions. Like many other roguelikes, virtually everything has a consequence and there are many hidden pitfalls. Each time you play through, solar systems are randomly generated along with enemies, loot and friendlies making the replay value very high. I recommend you also check my playthough of the game (incomplete at this time) http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=C25E03612635EC65
